Make Your Own July Events


If you still haven’t made plans for vacation in July and are looking for something to do, plan a road trip to Tennessee. In just a few hours, you can visit some of the best parks, go antiquing and visit old-timey country stores. Before you head out, make a service appointment at SouthTowne Motors to have your vehicle checked or serviced. You may be doing quite a bit of mountain driving, so it’s a good idea to have your brakes checked.

Fall Creek Falls State Park

Visit Tennessee’s largest state park for some of most beautiful views of waterfalls, gorges, cascades, virgin hardwood timber and more, including one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern United States. With over 26,000 acres on top of the Cumberland Plateau, you won’t get bored, even if you decide to stay more than just a few days. Fall Creek Falls is located 18 miles west of Pikeville and 11 miles east of Spencer. Enter the park on Highway 111 or Highway 30.

You can camp in a tent in one of the 222 campsites or stay in an inn with 145 hotel rooms. You can also stay in one of the 30 cabins. Or, if you’re hardcore, go backcountry camping. There are plenty of trails for hikers of all abilities and ages. You can even take the two overnight trails. If you’re making a face at camping out, you can always stay in the hotel and play golf on one of the best 18-hole courses in Tennessee. You’ll even find four playgrounds, five covered picnic pavilions, horse stables and an Olympic-sized pool.


No matter where you go in east or middle Tennessee, you’ll find antique stores and old-timey country stores everywhere. There are several along Rt. 127 up through Crossville and into Jamestown and Livingston. Take a detour off 127 or I-40 to Muddy Pond just outside of Monterey for handmade pastries and breads, a general store, a leather shop, and, during the right season, pick-your-own blueberries (nearly across from the store and leather shop).

Visit SouthTowne Motors

Be sure to have your vehicle checked and serviced at SouthTowne Motors before you head into the mountains. And, if you’re planning on a new car or truck, stop by for a test drive before you leave so you can drive the brand new vehicle on your trip.
